The StarTech 8 RU wall-mount unit (WALLSHELF8U) is extremely well made overall, I was impressed by the overall quality (except for the lag bolts included). It’s especially good if you only have a small space to work with and your needs are modest. Unfortunately, the unit will not work with the majority of servers without some creative modification as the maximum depth is only 18″ fully extended. However, in my case this rack turned out to be perfect for my needs and exceeded my expectations.
I reviewed many small wall-mount racks before I finally settled on this one. The turning point for me was that the depth of the rack is adjustable so it was helpful in my case since I had some rack mountable devices that were between 12 and 18 inches deep. 3/4 of the overall rack can be easily adjusted from a 12″ to 18″ depth, the rest of the rack is limited to a 12″ depth.
Mounting the rack can be a bit challenging if you’re doing alone and a somewhat small person like me. However, I was able to securely mount it to the wall solo by setting it on a step ladder while i mounted it to the wall. The mounting template turned out to be a very nice touch and made mounting much easier for me. It may be a small touch, but if you’re mounting this rack alone it is very helpful. The rack is heavy. You still need a level, but it’s much easier to use a level with a lightweight template than trying to get a heavy wall-mount level afterwards. I can’t say enough about the small touch of adding the template as an installation aid.
The only thing I didn’t like was the size of the mounting screws which I thought were too shallow for my mounting needs. Therefore, I did purchase larger anchor bolts than what was provided (the ones provided seemed a bit small to me for the amount of weight I was planning to put on it. I decided not to use a backer-board as I didn’t see any real benefit. Instead I purchased some polyurethane and nickel platted washers to place between the rack and the wall which in the end looked much cleaner than going a backer-board route.
The rack itself is extremely well built and solid – I am a fairly small lady, but it supported my full weight after it was mounted which exceeds the manufactures specifications. I also liked the spacing and positioning of the tie-off points. I very picky about cable management and the placement of tie-off points definitely makes cable management easier for me.

The rack did not come with instructions on how to put it together, but it’s easy to figure out once you get started.
I mounted it directly to studs behind a drywall as the holes on the rack are 16″ on center – which match the studs in newer homes – using 2 1/2″ lag bolts with 1 1/4″ washers.
Overall I am extremely happy with it’s design and it worked exactly as I needed it to in my use case. Would buy again/recommend.

I took off 1 star for cable management. There are holes in the rack along the top and bottom horizontal pieces in the front. You can use these with cable ties but gaining access to the back of them is very poor when you have gear installed in the rack. I had my shelf installed at the bottom and there is no way to get to the back of the holes to turn the cable tie back around. Plan ahead.
Otherwise a good rack.
Be prepared for the size. If a small footprint is important to your application it may not work.
